While watching youtube, I chanced upon a site devoted to giving previews of 10 upcoming Hollywood movies. I clicked upon the site and watched the previews. As expected, 9 out of 10 upcoming movies were extremely violent, the only one which was not was a children's cartoon type movie. The nine violent ones had similar characteristics. They had the most incredible screenshots which were worth looking at, except that the scenes kept charging so rapidly that it was impossible to focus upon the screenshots before they changed. Same for the special effects, which were breathtaking, except that they too had images that changed so rapidly it was hard to focus upon them. Next came the storyline,s which were usually so preposterous that they they were funny. Added to that, lots of political correctness, lots of minorities, and extremely beautiful, scantily clad female warriors, and extremely photogenic male warriors with supernatural fighting skills, and that just about sums up Hollywood today.
As a student of history, I am struck by the fact that history has so many interesting characters and interesting stories which have never even been depicted in the movies. And even when Hollywood did try to portray them in the past, they messed up the real story by making it look more "interesting" by completely changing the facts. I have just about given up on watching movies today (the last one I bought was "Greyhound" staring Tom Hanks). Does anyone else think that todays movies are boring and not worth watching? If so, could you please explain why you think that way?
